3 Step Electrician Training Courses

centre led training

Students attend a fully equipped training centre where they will learn essential theoretical knowledge and practical skills. They will also be registered with JIB and gain their ECS Electrical Trainee card, allowing them to seek paid employment.

On-site Experience

Under the supervision of a qualified electrician, students will undertake practical work and gain valuable on-site experience while being observed by NVQ assessors. The work completed must be documented by the students to make up their NVQ portfolio.

AM2 Assessment

Following completion of the NVQ training, students must undertake their AM2 (Achievement Measurement Test) at an independent AM2 centre. It is upon passing the AM2 that students can apply to JIB for their ECS Gold Card and earn the status of installation electrician.

Why become an electrician?

When you learn a trade, you learn a skill for life.

The trades industry is booming thanks to a rising population and an increase in the housing market. Because of this, there has never been a better time to learn a trade. With a shortage of skilled tradespeople comes a high demand and therefore, higher wages.

There are a number of reasons to become an electrician, with a high earning potential being just one of them.

When you become an electrician, you have a number of career options available to you. Electricians can work for an existing company, working set hours and receiving a monthly wage. Alternatively, there is the chance to become your own boss. This means choosing your own working hours, the jobs you take on and setting your own rate of pay. The average salary of an electrician in the UK is £30,000, but this is can be even higher depending on your location and experience level.

One common reason people change career is due to boredom in their role, however, as an electrician, you have the opportunity to travel and meet new people on a daily basis. This means that no two days are the same.

Here at Electrician Training Courses, we have developed our electrician training courses based on years of industry experience, delivering a professional course that will teach you all you need to know to become a qualified electrician.

  • Theory & Practical Training

    The LCL Awards accredited DEI training course begins with essential theoretical knowledge and practical skills. Students will train in our fully-equipped training centre, learning all they need to know to become a domestic electrician.

  • DEI Assessment

    Students will then go on to undertake their DEI assessment. This is made up of a combination of presentations, written papers, assignments and practical assessments covering areas such as fault finding, inspection and testing and earthing arrangements.

  • 18th Edition Wiring Regulations

    It is essential that electricians are up to date with the current wiring regulations. In order to complete step three of the DEI training course, students will learn and be tested on their understanding of 18th Edition Wiring Regulations through a 60 question online assessment.

Other electrician training courses

The first step towards gaining your 18th Edition Wiring Regulations qualification is training and revision. In either a classroom situation or via online training, students will cover the new 18 Edition Wiring Regulations. This includes the design, erection and verification of electrical installations. Step one will take place over a 3-4 day period. To assess the student’s understanding of 18th Edition Wiring Regulations, they will undertake an online assessment consisting of 60 questions. This will take place via an online assessment and along with resists – if necessary – should take no longer than 1-2 days.

Accelerated Electrician Training

To be eligible as a time-served electrician, you must have a minimum of 5-years of experience in the industry and hold older qualifications. If you are suitable for the training course, you will be required to complete an on-site portfolio of work. You will also be assessed by an NVQ assessor during your time on-site.

After building a high-quality portfolio of work, you must undertake your AM2 assessment before applying for your ECS Gold Card.

As a part-qualified electrician, you may already hold qualifications such as Level 2 or 3 diplomas. Because of this, you may be able to accelerate your training to gain the necessary qualifications you need to earn your ECS Gold Card.

In order to gain this, you will need to hold your NVQ level 3 and current wiring regulations – both of which you can earn with us. You must have also passed your Assessment Measurement Test (AM2).


Upon completion you will have gained your NVQ Level 3.

A new group of students begin the electrician training course on a monthly basis.

We keep classes smaller to ensure students receive a high-quality training and plenty of support. We set a maximum of 10 students per group.

Courses begin at 7:30 am – 8:30 am and end at 3:30 pm – 4:30 pm, depending on which centre you are training at.

No, we will provide all the tools and equipment required to complete training in the centre.

Shoes or boots, full-length trousers and a t-shirt or polo is a typical example of what students wear
